BTRFS has exactly what you describe (VSS) at the filesystem level, and is widely held to be the heir-apparent of the Linux Filesystem of the Future(TM) crown.

In fact, in Fedora 13, there is a yum plugin that will snapshot the system before every yum transaction, meaning you can rollback to any previous system state if an upgrade goes awry.
